Twins' Carlos Correa: Tallies three hits in win
Correa went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI and one walk in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Astros in Game 2 of the ALDS.
The star shortstop was an RBI machine in this contest, accounting for half of his team's runs to help tie the series. Correa was preparing himself for a postseason mentality at the end of the regular season, finishing the year with an .840 OPS across 15 games in September, his best mark of any month. That success has translated into October, as he now is slashing .533/.588/.733 across four games this postseason and has also contributed four RBI.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: In lineup for Game 1
Correa (hand) is in Minnesota's lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Correa didn't seem to be too concerned after getting hit in the hand by a pitch toward the end of Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series, and he's officially good to go Saturday.

Twins' Carlos Correa: X-rays on hand negative
X-rays on Correa's right hand came back negative after he was hit by a pitch during Wednesday's game against Toronto, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Correa was able to remain the game after taking a 99-mph Jordan Romano fastball off his hand in the eighth inning. Correa said after the game that he's "good to go," so it seems likely he'll be able to suit up for Minnesota's AL Divisional Series matchup against Houston.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Ready to roll for postseason
Correa (foot) told reporters Monday that he's ready to go for the American League Wild Card Series against the Blue Jays, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Correa hasn't played for the Twins in two weeks due to a flare-up with the plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He's been participating in simulated games in Minneapolis, though, and says his foot is feeling better. Correa batted only .230/.312/.399 for Minnesota this season while battling through the nagging foot issue, but he's certainly capable of providing a big boost in the playoffs, if healthy....

Twins' Carlos Correa: Won't return this weekend
Correa (foot) will not rejoin the Twins before the end of the regular season, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The original plan had been for Correa to travel with the Twins to Colorado for their final series of the regular season. However, the decision has been made for him to stay back and participate in simulated games instead. It is not being viewed as a setback, as Correa still appears in line to play in Game 1 of the Wild Card round next week. The veteran shortstop has been plagued by plantar fasciitis and will finish the 2023 season having slashed a disappointing .230/.312/.399 with 18 home runs over 135 games.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: To 10-day IL
Correa (plantar fasciitis) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Correa has dealt with lingering plantar fasciitis for much of the season, but he aggravated the issue Monday and went for an MRI on Tuesday. He will be eligible to return Sept. 29 in Coors Field. Kyle Farmer should assume a prominent role and Trevor Larnach was recalled from Triple-A to allow Willi Castro to spend more time in the infield with Royce Lewis (hamstring) also ailing....

Twins' Carlos Correa: Expected back for Coors series
Correa (plantar fasciitis) is expected to return from the injured list when first eligible Sept. 29 in Coors Field, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
An MRI taken of Correa's left foot showed a full thickness tear of the central cortex of his plantar fascia, per Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. That sounds scary but is actually a good thing, as the hope is that it will alleviate the discomfort he's been feeling and he can make it back after a minimum stay on the IL. Royce Lewis (hamstring) could also end up on the shelf after a scheduled MRI this weekend, so Kyle Farmer will play roughly every day and Willi Castro will be used more in the infield....

Twins' Carlos Correa: Still out Wednesday
Correa (plantar fasciitis) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Reds.
Correa underwent an MRI on Tuesday after his plantar fasciitis flared up Monday and the team has not released the results. Kyle Farmer is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth. The Twins have an off day Thursday before a weekend homestand against the Angels.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Awaiting MRI results
Correa, who is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Reds, underwent an MRI on his left foot earlier in the day, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.comreports.
The 28-year-old has played through plantar fasciitis in his left foot throughout the season, and the issue flared up during Monday's loss to Cincinnati. Bench coach Jayce Tingler said the team is approaching the injury as a day-to-day concern and noted that Correa has typically been able to return to action relatively quickly this season after aggravating the issue....

Twins' Carlos Correa: Out of lineup with foot issue
Correa (foot) is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's game in Cincinnati.
Correa had to be removed from Monday's loss to the Reds after aggravating the lingering plantar fasciitis in his left foot, so it's not surprising he's on the bench a day later. The veteran shortstop has dealt with a foot issue for much of the season and was forced to miss a couple of games last week. How much time Correa might miss this time around isn't clear, though at this stage, the Twins are labeling him day-to-day. Kyle Farmer is filling in at shortstop Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Exits early Monday
Correa was removed from Monday's game against the Reds in the second inning after aggravating his left plantar fasciitis, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Correa ran a long way to track down a flyball in the bottom of the first inning, and he was removed in the top half of the second. The shortstop has been battling plantar fasciitis since late May, and this latest setback could force him to miss time. The team will likely re-evaluate Correa on Tuesday to determine his availability moving forward. In the meantime, look for Kyle Farmer to see opportunities at shortstop.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Sitting again Thursday
Correa remains out of the lineup Thursday versus the White Sox.
It's the second straight absence for Correa, who has battled plantar fasciitis throughout the summer. He could be in for regular maintenance days down the stretch with the Twins holding a commanding lead on first place in the AL Central standings. Kyle Farmer will play shortstop and bat eighth Thursday in Chicago.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Rare day off Wednesday

Twins' Carlos Correa: Heating up at plate
Correa went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run and an RBI in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Guardians. He also reached base when he was struck by a pitch for the fourth time this season.
Though Correa acknowledged toward the end of August that he has continued to battle plantar fasciitis in his left foot, he hasn't seemed to be affected at the plate of late. He'll head into Wednesday's series finale in Cleveland riding a five-game hitting streak, during which he's slashed .429/.478/.571 with one home run, five RBI and four runs. Correa will start at shortstop and bat fifth Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Plantar fasciitis a 'struggle'
Correa told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic on Sunday that, since being diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in his left foot in late May, "every step is a struggle."
"Every step is a struggle. It's not easy to deal with," Correa said. "Out of all the things I've played with in my career, there's nothing more painful than what I've been through this year. But I'm pushing through it. If it had been a free-agent year, I probably would have sat out more time to let it heal. But I'm here to help the team win games. Just my presence, I feel I need to be out there." Correa's nagging foot issue no doubt at least partly explains his struggles this season, as he's managed just a .708 OPS through 117 games. He has been better of late with an .882 OPS across his last 18 contests and said he feels an obligation to continue playing through discomfort as the Twins try to wrap up a playoff spot....

Twins' Carlos Correa: Returns to lineup Friday
Correa (foot) is playing shortstop and batting cleanup Friday versus the Pirates.
Correa didn't play in Wednesday's win over the Tigers due to what the Twins simply referred to as soreness, but it's reasonable to assume it was foot-related since he's been playing through plantar fasciitis for a while. He's feeling well enough to give it a go Friday after Thursday's off day, as he and his Minnesota teammates take on Andre Jackson and the Pirates.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Carlos Correa: Sitting Wednesday due to soreness
Correa's absence from the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers is a result of him feeling sore after he legged out an infield single in the sixth inning of Tuesday's 5-3 win, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Correa didn't appear to be in too much pain after he reached first on the base hit, as he was able to stay in the game and play the full nine innings. The Twins haven't provided much clarity on the source of Correa's soreness, but the injury could be related to his foot, given that he's been playing through plantar fasciitis for multiple months. Regardless, Correa isn't believed to be dealing with anything significant, and the Twins believe that after a maintenance day Wednesday followed by a team off day Thursday, the 28-year-old will be good to go for Friday's series opener versus the Pirates....
